REPORT: Alabama-Virginia Tech rematch coming?


Will the Alabama Crimson Tide face Virginia Tech Hokies in a rematch of the memorable 2009 Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game? According to this report by Kyle Tucker this is possible. Tucker reports, “Tech athletic director Jim Weaver confirmed Friday that he is in negotiations for a potential rematch between the Hokies and Alabama in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff to start the 2013 season, which would be broadcast nationally on ESPN.”

“There’s some potential to it,” Weaver told Tucker. “It’s nothing that’s set in stone. The executive director of the Chick-fil-A Bowl, Gary Stokan, approached us.”

The Alabama Crimson Tide continues to schedule some interesting out-of-conference games. The 2011 Alabama football schedule features traditional powerhouse Penn State. These games have been important for the football program and fans.

So, is this a something fans want to see? Or would you prefer a different opponent?
